Comments: 
Went for a ride in the woods today on the snow scooters. Wanted to check out the conditions and look at the whisky hill avalanche debris. The weather was mild down low under a broken sky. As we approached whisky we could see the wind transporting lots of snow. It is still really scary out there! As we pulled up to beer hill to look at the natural avalanche debris on the far right, I leaned hard on my scooter to adjust it and felt the collapse. This remote triggered beer hill from about 150 yards away. We sat there and watched it slide while trying to catch a video... sadly only got photos. See avalanche obs on UAC website.
